Hold On To Your Faith, Now More Than Ever!
2020 just keeps laying it on, doesn’t it? The words of Robert Kennedy prove to be the perfect fit – “Like it or not, we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also the most creative of any time in the history of mankind.” These are indeed ‘excruciatingly’ interesting times, across the world. We’ve been saddled with the pandemic, floods, fires, locust swarms, and what not!
On the 5th of August, things got that much more real for Mumbai city-dwellers, especially those living in South Bombay, which got a stinging taste of the fury of the Rain Gods, as torrential rains wreaked much havoc, with landslides, uprooted trees, walls and buildings and other structures collapsing, and even roads being split across the center! Not to mention the power cuts and water shortage that the city is still reeling under!
Yes indeed, we are living in extraordinary times, trying to make sense out of this new world, as we grapple for some foothold with the old one slipping from right under our feet. This is also the time when our faith is truly tested. The real test of faith is when you’re facing something that only your faith in your God, or in your connect with the divine, or simply in your belief that better times await us, will get you through.
It is said, ‘faith precedes the miracle’. As of now, any form of reprieve or normalcy would be miracle enough! What is important is to keep the faith. Remember – ‘if He brings you to it, He will bring you through it!’ So, keep the faith, now, more than ever, as we head into a New Year, which will bring in better tidings for all.
And speaking of New Year, don’t miss PT’s Bumper Special New Year issue next Saturday, 8th August. With ‘Celebrating Hope’ as its theme, it promises to raise your spirits with great content and have you entering the New Year with a smile on your lips and with faith and hope in your heart!
Have a safe and calm weekend!
Have a good weekend!
